The Adventure of Grief ➫ My Story of Navigating Loss & Learning to Fall in Love with the World Anew
Earlier this year, I was invited to take part in a poignant photography project by British photographer Simon Bray. Nearly a decade ago Simon lost his father to prostate cancer and felt moved to start this project as a way to shine a light on the stigma of grief in our society, to 'act as a public declaration that death has lost its sting'.
Thinking back on those years we shared,
I marvel at how you risked delight,
Amidst those waves of your own anguish.
I know what I must do.
I must seek out,
That you held in your affection.
For in their presence,
I still feel your spirit dancing.
That your final gift,
Was a beautiful invitation,
To learn to fall in love
With the world
